Calculators and Maple are allowed on the homework but full credit will not be given unless work is shown (where possible). Collaboration on the homework is strongly encouraged. However, each person must write up their solutions themselves and put on the homework the names of everyone they worked with.
Quote From Calculus at Penn: "Most of your work in calculus will be spent on homework assignments. This can be more time consuming than many other courses. The average student should spend at least 10 hours per week outside of class to master calculus well. This includes time for reading text, solving assigned homework problems (the minimum work required), working on computer assignments and discussing the harder problems with your study group. Many students will need more than 10 hours per week of practice."
